Volume I of Contemporary Ascetics of Mount Athos

“The modern spiritual classic, Contemporary Ascetics of Mt. Athos, acquaints the reader with the authentic monastic life of the elders of the Holy Mountain. Fr. Cherubim selected as the subjects of his narratives the spiritual guides who helped to determine the spiritual climate of Mt. Athos which he met upon his arrival there in 1938. [...]Contemporary Ascetics of Mt. Athos for many years will endure in the English language as the most endearing literature on Mt. Athos. [...]The great value of reading about the lives of these elders is that they disclose the paradise open today to mortals, and the most loving God who stretches forth His hands to embrace His sons returning to Him at this eleventh hour.”
